Walker Texas Lawyer has agreed to once again sponsor the Back the Badge Ride (April 14th, 2018), an annual charity event raising money for the 100 Club. The 100 Club is a 63-year-old, citizen-based organization that provides financial support to the dependents of law enforcement officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty in a 31-county region surrounding Houston, Texas. Also, providing line-of-duty death benefits to: Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Parks & Wildlife and TABC sworn personnel and TDCJ institutional personnel killed in the line-of-duty anywhere in the State of Texas. The 32,000+ member organization also provides life-protecting equipment for law enforcement agencies in our 18-county region and scholarships.
A group of five men ‚Äì consisting of Leopold L. Meyer, Ray R. Elliot, R. H. Abercrombie, William A. “Bill” Smith, and Jim “Silver Dollar” West ‚ realized the need to support the dependents of Houston police officers killed in the line of duty. So they reached out and motivated 100 people to contribute $100 each toward the mission. Thus, The 100 Club was born. For nearly 50 years, the organization focused on police officers. However in 2001, The 100 Club expanded to support firefighters. As new counties have been added and new public servants added, the mission has always remained the same. And today, the organization has grown from 100 humble members to more than 30,000 strong.
